from a group channeling with Melora.

1: I notice that in dreamtime
. . . it seems to be when I'm about to wake up, I start judging
the dream. Before then there appears to be the rather unconditional
aspect of what's happening, and that's why in dreams things can
flow and change. And it can happen in this world too,
but everything changes as soon as you start judging. But there
is that peace in lucid dreaming where you're there and it's okay.
Now matter what happens, you feel grounded. Now, is that occurring
that way as a learning experience so that you can get at . .
. that you need to incorporate in your waking time?
MELORA: As we understand your question,
perhaps you are describing getting a glimpse of the real, experiential
value that the dream imparts to you many times out of archetypal
symbols, archetypal characters and events. You recognize them,
and in waking and re-evaluating the dream content, your mind
is simply trying to help you adapt it in a way that makes sense
to your mind. This is the mind's function, and the mind should
not be flagellated for doing what is its job to do. But, much
as with Shamanic journeying into the lower, middle and upper
worlds, if you try to control the process and you try to impose
rules of your rational mind, you go nowhere in your journey.
This is true of the dream,
and so, yes--as soon as you begin to awaken you start reinterpreting
your dream, and then you change it. This is why it is best to
wake up and start writing down what you dreamt exactly as it
happened, without any editorializing.
1: Okay. Then the parallel
that I was making was that in the dream you can be observing
different things (and there's a fine line between observing them
and feeling them), and then there's this clicking-in of the mind
and it says, "I should be getting scared now. I should be
doing something else."
MELORA: In the lucid dreaming, where you
are able to change the content of the dream as you go along?
MELORA: Not many are able to do this. At
the point at which you're actually experiencing the emotion in
your dream, your body that's lying there sleeping doesn't know
the difference between what's real and not. And so, of course,
you're going to get the same hormonal output into your body when
you're lying there as you would if this happened in your waking
state. That is the value of the archetypal content: feeling those
emotions and releasing.
1: What I seem to feel
is that I have the same thing in the waking world as well, so
that the difference between dreaming and being awake is next
to none because you're dealing with the same kind of thing. Certain
patterns eradicate the "nowness" as you're evaluating
MELORA: Yes, and our perspective of this
would be that what you're describing is something people are
going to experience more and more as their consciousness gets
more focused in 4th and 5th dimension and gets pulled gradually
away from 3rd dimension. And there will be that kind of "iffy"
(as our Jyoti is saying to us) domain, right where you're hovering
between 3rd- and 4th-dimensional, and 5th-dimensional consciousness.
There will be that blending in a sort of surreal way.
You do this sometimes at
night anyway in your dream state--going out to multi-dimensional
lives and working with those. You say, "This dream was really
bizarre, but it made sense at the time." The rules that
apply in dreamtime and in your multi-dimensional experiences
don't often resemble the rational, linear kinds of ways that
3-dimensional reality is reputed to work. [laughs] The way that
we perceive that it works. And so what you're describing is something
that many people will be experiencing more and more.
For example, our Jyoti's
friends have noticed that she's as much "here" as she
is "not here." But she hasn't realized she's been "gone."
They see that she's gone, and they call her attention to it,
and she "comes back." Just walking down the street
or eating lunch or something. And so there are these periods
of time in which she just "goes somewhere," and we
are perceiving that many of you are having the same experiences
and are laughing in recognition. As Seth so brilliantly explained
it in the Jane Roberts material through her as his channel .
. . he said that your consciousness is like a light bulb. When
you're in 3-D you perceive it as being on and then it's off,
but the only thing you remember is that that light was on all
the time. It was actually off as much as it was on. It goes on/off,
on/off. That is what 3rd-dimensional consciousness is actually
like. It is your perception that you are here all the time, but
you're really not. Thank you for your question.
2: I have a question
about polarity. How does polarity run? Does it go from your head
to your feet or from left to right?
MELORA: You're asking about polarity in
the body. Thank you for asking this question, because what is
happening is that people's physical polarity is shifting.
2: Yes, and how do you
notice that. How would I find out whether mine has shifted. Are
there people who can see it? Can I see it?
MELORA: This is not a hemispheric
change, as in two brain hemispheres. It is that the left side
of the body used to be the more receptive side. And then the
energy used to "come out" through the right side of
the body. Many people, for example, if they want to explore the
energies of a crystal, will hold it in their left hand. You've
been told this. Well, you may find that that's not working for
you anymore. When you shift the crystal, now, to your right hand,
you're suddenly feeling its energy more.
You may also notice a sensitivity
shifting from . . . normally when you're right-hand dominant,
your left side feels more sensitive. It feels more vulnerable;
it feels weaker, and so on. This is not a matter of muscle development.
This is a perceptual thing with the body, with the nerve endings.
You may now notice that this is shifting to the other side. Where
suddenly on your right arm you'll get goosebumps when there's
danger, or this sort of thing. But the most pronounced effects
right now are in the bone structure, as we have described. Your
body polarities are changing.
The Earth's poles will not
shift but her polarity will. So when they're saying there
will be a polar shift, they forgot the -ity on the end
of it. And so you'll actually be more comfortable as your polarity
changes. But many are experiencing this effect at the temporal
lobes, which feels like the brain is trying to burst out of their
skulls. Others are having TMJ problems when they've never experienced
it before, and the neck problems and other skeletal, structural
problems are going on.
It is our
suggestion that people deal with these sorts of symptoms with
your whole relationship to Ascension. Focus your consciousness
on where you wish to go. Focus your consciousness on the Ascension
and the healing of the Earth. Focus your consciousness on releasing
that which is an impediment to your Ascension consciousness.
And so the work that so many are doing now is getting in touch
with their multi-dimensional lives, which is emphasized in Bringers
of the Dawn and which was one of the true things that the
Pleiadians brought to people's consciousness in this book. Become
aware of your other incarnational selves. This is critical.
1: So whatever pain we're
experiencing in our temporal lobes, the TMJ, and so forth are
just drawing our consciousness. If we put our attention there,
then we become a little bit more unstuck?
MELORA: Yes. Once you acknowledge what you
see--for what it is--and release it, then you have released another
impediment to Ascension consciousness. And you have ceased to
focus on something else that is here in 3-D. And you can see,
for example, when people are holding grudges . . . "My mother
was a lousey mother and I can't relate to her" . . . what
you do is to anchor yourself in 3-D back there somewhere.
And so in the fluid NOW, in coming to a resolution with Mommy
and with however it is that she "failed" you--in releasing
that, then one frees oneself and cut that anchor line. You can
lift off from what used to be that 3-D anchor.
3: I wonder if you could
tell me in more detail of what you experience when your consciousness
moves more into 4th dimension.
MELORA: Yes. In the past, the 4th dimension
was called the Astral Plane, and in the old days this was a higher
plane. Now it is not a higher plane. 4th Dimension is actually
a dimension you should pass through rather quickly--if you don't
get caught up in the allure of being able to manifest instantly.
The "danger," if you will is the temptation to exert
power over people in 3rd-dimensional consciousness and "messing
with their minds." Within the 4th dimension you will find
many entities who are rexperienced as negative entities
or possessions . . . entities that are fed by people's fear and
so attach to them.
Understand that the 4th dimension
is not a plane to stay in for any length of time. It is sort
of like taking a vacation to Tahiti for the soul from 3-D because
of the difficulty of manifesting in 3rd-dimensional reality.
Many, especially those working in the Light and in healing modalities,
as we're sure you're aware, are struggling financially. In the
4th dimension, for a time, you can enjoy seeing your movie script
come to production or see your art viewed by millions of people.
Whatever it is that you wish, you can manifest instantly, so
it's like a reward for what one has gone through in 3-D.
But it is really more like
a vacation dimension. And so in the higher Soul work, those of
consciousness know that it's been a vacation and that now it's
time to go back to that spiritual school that is ongoing. You
move to 5th dimension, which calls to your experience of harmony
3: Would your experience
in 5th dimension be more purely vibrational?
MELORA: You still have your Light Body but
you don't have your dense physical form any more. You still have
a cohesive . . . what can be seen visually by physical eyes,
for example. With physical eyes and the developed inner vision
of clairvoyance, and so forth, could still see you as a Light
Body. And you could still perceive each other in that way in
4: When the Earth ascends
in 4th and 5th dimensions, you had talked in the last public
session about how we don't have to stop there?
MELORA: That's correct.
4: You had said that
you could "set your sights" as "high" as
you want to go and not limit yourself to . . . is it going to
be detrimental to go soaring on out for the Earth as a whole,
or is it better to just say, "Well, we'll hang out in 4th
and 5th dimension until we get everybody to this level, and then
I can go on"?
MELORA: The boddhisatva question
. . . that's a consideration made on the Soul level by specific
individuals and is more than just an expression of Buddha, who
is a boddhisatva, as you know. Light Beings in service, such
as those of the Great White Brotherhood (which is neither "white"
nor just "brothers" exclusively . . . it's not a very
good description, really [laughs]) . . . beings of the Light
are always looking for ways to be of service in the Light, and
so when you go on you can go home, which our Jyoti would really
like to do. She's saying, "Well, I know that it would probably
be cooler to come back as an Ascended Master and help people,
but I just want to go home. I'm really tired." There's no
penalty for that.
And so the heart of the question
is, on the Soul level, what is appropriate for you. There are
those who wish to work with Ascension, as the Great White Brotherhood
are doing, and those who will ascend and bring their bodies to
light and return and shock all of their friends on the East Coast
who haven't even heard of Ascension [much laughter throughout
the room], like our Jyoti's friend in New York City and her sister
in Dallas. (When our Jyoti told her sister she channeled, her
sister quietly cleared her throat, and that was it.) So imagine
how greater an effect it would be if you took your body to light
and you appeared to your sister in Dallas in your light form,
and then she would say: "Oh." [laughter] "I think
I'd better look into this." Do you see? And so that's another
way people are going to be awakened. But the choice is really
on the Soul Level.
There are those who have
come from much higher dimensions than 5th and who, upon Ascension,
will be returning home to their starry groups--their starry origins--spiritually.
They have been here and have done a great job. Just getting into
a consciousness of Ascension is a major miracle in 3rd-dimensional
density. That is a miracle, and all are honored for that. And
so it is an individual choice. As we said, there's no penalty
for saying, "I'm tired and I want to go home."
5: Recently in meditation
I had a blockage that I couldn't break through. I guess I'm trying
to discover or embrace my own divinity, to become in touch with
my "I AM" presence. What's been coming to me is the
subtlety of my Ego, and I think my question is: How do I recognize
that subtlety of my Ego on a regular basis so that I don't beat
my Ego up or punish it? I'd like my Ego to feel okay but not
MELORA: Yes. And one of the first signs
that Ego is the one at the helm is when you're not feeling a
sense of well-being, when you're not feeling good about yourself,
when there's anger, when there's frustration. Anything that is
non-love, non-peace and non-joy is being filtered through the
Ego. It's not that the Ego should be shot or hanged or something,
as you know. But the filter of the Ego in doing its job
is to protect you from harm, and this also includes acknowledging
that you're wrong.
Hence, the expression: "Do
you want to be right, or do you want to be happy?" is very
important here. And so many go through the dramas of 3rd -dimensional
reality because they need to be right. Why do they need
to be right? Because the ego is protecting them from what it
judges to be harmful to them. "I have to admit I was a schmoe."
[laughs] "I have to admit that I was really opinionated,
and I wasn't seeing the whole picture. Now I have to apologize,"
or whatever. The Ego sees this as something it has to protect
you from experiencing.
The way to know that you're
in balance with doing what your Ego is intended to do, which
is to help you survive in 3-D reality (which it does very well),
is to re-negotiate between your will, your heart and your intuition,
and say, "Let's be more flexible and have more fun. What
do you think?" We've said this before. We've said to give
your Ego new jobs to do, and what we term as your "child
issues"--these ticks, these issues that don't go away no
matter how many self-help books you've read or how many workshops
you've gone to--they're usually tied into a mechanism of Ego
that was used to help you survive. Alas, for many, this is literally
survival of childhood.
When these things come to
the surface, you're supposed to examine the issues. Understand
that these are patterns and habits that your Ego has gotten in
to from a long time ago to do its job and protect you. So you
can, in intention and consciousness, say to your Ego: "Wouldn't
you like a break? Let's do something fun. Let's change the program
here. Gosh! You've been doing a brilliant job. I praise you and
honor you for that. But you know what? You really deserve to
have a good time now." So then you, out of your will, your
intent and your heart and your spirit connection acknowledge
your Ego and say, "Let's do something fun."
How you do that would be
your individual way--according to your personality, according
to your gifts, according to your imagination, and so forth--you
would make up these ways to keep addressing your Ego in almost
a dissociative way for awhile until it gets retrained, it "calms
down," and it starts to function in a balanced way with
all of your other mechanisms.
5: You stated that it's
wise for us to become aware of our multi-dimensional personalities
or . . .
MELORA: Incarnational lives--multi-dimensional
5: What is the best way
to do that? And why is it wise for us to do that?
MELORA: We stress the importance of this
because our perception of Ascension is much broader, maybe, than
many people have interpreted it. Our mission is to help with
merging, and merging is what you do with your multi-dimensional
lives when you bring them into integration with you as
you bring your body to Light. Not just you, yourself, in this
life. Do you see?
And so, as we said in another
public session, the greatness of allowance and achievement of
Buddha was just this. This is why he is acknowledged not just
as another one being who attained enlightenment, but his allowance
and achievement were that he experienced that merging with all
of his multi-dimensional existences--past, present and future--in
the body at age 35 and went on to teach until his 80s. And so
this is the greatness of his being.
Our work is about such merging.
You are the ones whose guides are pushing your forward to consciously
understand that this is possible and desirable for you. So as
an example, you do not access your incarnational lives laterally,
through history linearly. You access them through your Higher
Self. There's a triangulation effect. With your intent and your
asking, your guides, your Higher Self, and what our Jyoti calls
your "vertical soul hierarchy," you are able to identify
possible "past" lives. Understand that there are also
other, concurrent, present lives and future lives.
We will work on the "past,"
which is most people's impression of reincarnation. So there's
a period in history which, since you were a child, you were completely
enamored of. The El Amarna period in Egypt of Akhenaton and Nefertiti,
or the Dynastic reign of King Tut. You've always been fascinated
by that time. There's music from that time. There are movies
about that time. There are books about that time. (We know you're
thinking about at least one of these right now.) And again and
again, somehow you resonate with that period in history.
You can be sure, especially
if there is intense emotion involved there, that this is an incarnational
situation. There are also clues in your major life issues, and
you can be sure that these issues are being expressed in other
incarnational lives as well. They may be expressed in a different
way. We will give you an example. With our Jyoti, automobile
accident. Whiplash. Two times. Beheading in Elizabethan life.
See the correlation? All this chronic neck pain and TMJ, and
so on. It is just that obvious. And so in each life you have
the same neck pain, but you have it expressed in a different
We are laughing because we
are remembering the time she was in meditation and heard: "You
became too attached to your body." [general laughter] She
is saying to us now, "Cruel joke, Melora. Cruel joke."
Yes. Well, she had integrated that part, and so it was not something
Phobias are another way you
can identify experiences of your past lives. Vertigo, fear of
fire, fear of drowning, fear of getting too cold, fear of getting
pneumonia--these recurring life fears. Recurring dreams can also
be clues to reincarnational lives. Basically, however, you state
your intent to your guides (this is the practical part) or to
your Higher Self (whatever you're comfortable with as a high
being of the light) and say, "I wish to be given information
about my multi-dimensional lives." And you can say: "in
my dream state" or "in meditation" or "just
directly, energetically" or "in pictures." This
sort of thing.
What we stress again and
again is that your guides are waiting for you to ask.
They're sort of leaning over the fence towards you, but a being
of the light cannot violate y our free-will permission. It seems
a simple thing to do, but so few people remember that all they
have to do is ask, and so the guides' perennial "compliant,"
if you will, is: "Please. Why don't you just ask."
So, with your clear intent that that's what you wish to do, they
start that rolling for you in a way that's comfortable.
6: I have been told by
another channel that I have never lived on this Earth before.
Is that possible?
MELORA: Oh, that's definitely possible.
A person may have had 3rd-dimensional lives many, many infinite
numbers of places but not on the Earth but also must go through
the every-dimensional experience. It just may not be somewhere
you would recognize as Earth. There are other star systems, there
are other planets, there are other locations where you can experience
cause-effect and karma besides the Earth.
7: When we're bringing
in our multi-dimensional lives, would there be any beyond this
planet to be learned [garbled] . . .?
MELORA: Yes. But understand that because,
as you know, these lives are simultaneous, it's almost impossible
for the brain to grasp. We will give you an example, and our
Jyoti is saying, "Oh, don't talk about me again."
But just to serve as an example . . . her origin, as we answered
her, is the Sirius System, but in a time so ancient that it pre-dates
human life on the Earth--but it is simultaneous with this
And so the lives on star
systems, or your "future" lives being simultaneous
with these lives, are no less accessible than "past"
lives in the fluid NOW. All continue to affect each other in
the ongoing Now--all your lives will affect each other. So the
answer to a hidden question is: "Yes. When you progress
"here," they do too." We like that expression,
"Do you understand that God cannot grow if you don't?"
That is how great you are.
Regarding so-called "future"
lives, look at them in the same way as in this example of a very
ancient origin on Sirius B, third planet. When you're considering
future lives, you're really more dependent on your guides
to put you in touch with them on some level, If only in the dream
state, you're connected. Even if you don't consciously remember,
that connection is still needing consciousness because that Light
effect is exponential. In other words, if there's one glimpse
of consciousness from one life to another through the Higher
Self, then that's all that's necessary.
People tend to want to explore,
you know, "my life in Pompeii," or whatever. (We know
of one person in this room who died of suffocation in Pompeii.
She's clearing her throat. [laughter]) And then they get lost
in the allure of that life. What they're forgetting is that the
value of connecting is to acknowledge, to have that spark of
acknowledgement, but then to move on. Understand that those other
lives are doing the same with you.
So, for example, one of the
things that our Jyoti has determined recently from the work with
Pallas Athena is that she is a priestess to Athena and to others
(such as Nefertiti) in many lives. Understand that such priestesses
were really channels. These are some of the exciting revelations
that you can experience when you touch other lives and the connections
that you can make in your consciousness that you, now, are what
So our Jyoti says, "Okay.
The high priestess channeled Athena and became the emodiment
of Athena, and the people of that time treated the channel as
if she were Athena." You know that this was true
of all history regarding the various "gods" and "goddesses."
There were certain incarnate beings who embodied that god or
goddess and who were treated as if they literally were that god
or goddess. All the Caesars and, in fact, all the monarchs of
Western Europe, were supposed to be embodiments of divinity.
Yes, they were channels.
And so our Jyoti says, "Wow! That's pretty neat. I'm doing
what they were doing when they channeled." And this
is very true. So, in getting in touch . . . we've never been
known for our brevity [laughter] . . . with your other lives
you receive such revelations that help you relate to what you
consider "history," which is really very static--a
linear "recording." The static version, not the energetic
version, of the ongoing changes in history simultaneously. As
you look at what's written in books, you have a whole new viewpoint
of that historic period because you connected with youself in
that "time." And because you now understand it in your
consciousness that you share. Understanding that in some way
that expression of you has bridged to you for such a moment and
had such a revelation about a future life is very exciting. We
may not have answered your question. [General laughter.]
7: I'm not sure. [more
MELORA: Future lives are more difficult
to access because you don't have anything written down. You have
an orientation to past lives because you have linear history,
but it is so much more difficult to get into a space where you
can connect with future lives because you don't have this point
7: I think the main thing
I need cleared up would be whether . . . from what I've heard,
if even my Higher Self connects with this, I don't consciously,
on this level, have to know about each life that I'm connecting
with. Is that so? Or do I consciously have to know?
MELORA: There has to be at least a moment
in which you have a sense of the reality of that life. Just energetically
for a moment. This is often what you experience when you're seeing
. . . our Jyoti was thinking of the Titanic three or four times
recently. She knows she was on it. She knows she went
down with it. And when you have this sort of attraction/repulsion
for something--this fascination with very strong emotion--then
when you can acknowledge to yourself that that may very well,
indeed, be a past life and accept it on that level, then that
connection in consciousness is indeed made.
You don't need a hypnotic
regression in which you relive it. Some part of you already is
connected and senses that with that life. Regarding the strong
emotions attached to things you have not experienced in this
life you might say, "That's irrational. I have this unreasonable
fear of . . . such and such." You can be sure you're in
that territory of sharing consciousness with that past life.
